Thanks to brother Jay Lee for reminding me that this survey of the top 5 films featuring ‘monkey style’ kung fu films is due to come to a close. I must thank ALL of you who submitted your top 5 list. Without your participation, I could have not compiled this list. To be honest, I am in no way surprised as to which film received the most votes on this particular list, I am quite sure it’s a film that each and every one of you had listed in your top 5.
Now for the list of the TOP 5 Films Featuring ‘Monkey Style’ Kung Fu, as voted on by the SC36 disciples:
As I stated above, I pretty much knew that the 1979 Shaw Brothers film, ‘Mad Monkey Kung Fu’ would be victorious in this poll. I had also hoped that ‘Iron Monkey’ as well as ‘Snake in the Monkey’s Shadow’ made the Top 5 as well, and they did. Collectively, you all have great taste in films. I look forward to your continued support by submitting your next TOP 5 in the next poll, which should be up in a few days. Thank you.
Here is a list of honorable mentions:
- Knockabout (1979)
- Monkey Fist, Floating Snake (1979)
- Crazy Horse, Intelligent Monkey (1982)
1979 was such a great year for monkey kung fu films, wasn’t it?
